Chiropractor

“Let the spine unwind”

Dr. Greg has been serving the Calgary community as a chiropractor since 2008. He became interested in chiropractic as a profession when his first wife was diagnosed with cancer almost 20 years ago.

As he participated in researching the most optimal ways to assist in the body in achieving full health again, what soon became apparent was that our everyday choices and lifestyles were potentially a huge contributor to our complete health and well-being. This research eventually altered the course of his life. In 2004 he was accepted into the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto and never looked back. Over the years Dr. Greg has arrived at his own unique way to look at complete health with chiropractic care and a healthy spine/nervous system as an essential foundation of optimal health and well-being.

“The wonderful part of being a chiropractor is the array of techniques that are available to assist the body to become well again. There’s no need to be a one-size fits all chiropractor anymore. Light touch techniques, instrument adjusting, manual adjustments, upper cervical care, traction techniques, full spinal correction are among the many different techniques available to help patients get better. The body is designed to heal. It is part of your innate gift as a human being. It doesn’t matter if you cut yourself when you’re an infant or if you’re over 90, you still have the ability to heal. It’s usually not time or age that is the problem, it’s the accumulation and exacerbation of stressors over time that eventually create the issues that drive people into our office. The focus on healing then is simply to assist the body in un-doing the effects of accumulated stress.”

Growing up in Sparwood, BC just across the AB/BC border, close to the world-famous Fernie ski hill, Dr. Greg has called Calgary home since 1986. An avid outdoor, exercise, nutrition, and overall personal development enthusiast, Dr. Greg presently lives in Calgary with his wife Treena, and their two daughters Zoey and Abi. Their family lives for the outdoors in all seasons that don’t rhyme with “winter”. The family passion is water sports! Waterskiing, wake-boarding, surfing…and more!

Chiropractic SE Calgary AB Lee Botbijl Massage Therapist

Lee Botbijl

It all started with my sister who had burnt her feet as a baby and had damaged her skin, she would ask me to help her with the pain from time to time and as a good brother I did. It was, however, not until I was 14 years old that my intuition started to kick in and I started to see spirits and energy.

Read More

At that time in my life I remember having had a dream so very profound and in that dream I had prayed for safety from monsters and in my dream god reached down and held my hand to save me, I really started to see colors and experience sound deeper after that. I would just listen to the sound for hours and just relax to the world that way, I still do but on such a deeper level.

Unfortunately, as a child I was told by the traditional church that spirits and energy work where bad, so I hid from it and did not let it flourish.

When I was 23 I met my wife, who was very spiritual with her own gifts and Christian. It was then that I started to allow myself to relax into my gifts, it was the beginning of where I am today.

After a few years of leaning into my spiritual gifts and trusting my intuition with my wife by my side, I had become so strong in it that I had envisioned and predicted my son’s exact date of birth and thus was able to tell my wife she was pregnant before she even knew.

My wife had our son and I almost lost both in the delivery. It changed my life. I switched careers, spent most of my time researching therapies and modalities to help my now disabled son have a normal life. I studied everything from traditional healing such as speech and language pathology, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy practices to very alternative healing modalities like sound therapy, polarity therapy, meditation, and wholistic nutrition. While doing this I remembered helping my sister at the young age of 8 years old and my intuition drove me back to massage.

I started with energy work using Reiki and my own gut to help clients, eventually going back to school for massage at the Vancouver Career College in BC while also running, with my wife, a clinic that offered registered massage and sensory deprivation. My clinic won Customer Service of the year award our first year running.

Two years later I moved my family from BC to AB in search of better funding and services for our son. We now had a daughter and moved away from family support. I went back to my old career for a couple years while growing and practicing my spiritual gifts and taking extra courses such as Access Conciseness (BARS) Therapy, and the highest level of Qi Gong as a Medical Qi Gong practitioner and facilitator. I would have clients from BC driving out to AB to see me for sessions.

In 2015 I quit my job and finished up my career and education to become registered in Alberta as a massage therapist. I graduated in both wholistic nutrition and registered massage therapy and opened up my practice again. I have since been trying to find a place to call home for my services.

Today I am a registered massage therapist specializing in Myofascial work and the energetic tissues in our body, I guide my clients in the unwinding of physical and emotional traumas using both ancient and alternative techniques. I go on a spiritual, physical, and mental healing journey with my clients to help them experience what living a powerful life will be like. I work with clients that suffer from accidents, chronic pain, trauma, disability, and high levels of stress.

I am happy to announce that my son has overcome a lot of his cognitive disabilities, and you would barely know he has Cerebral Palsy or Apraxia if you met him, and you may find my son attending one of our classes, in the salt room, or helping me in videos.
